BAKU, Azerbaijan 

Popular flavors of Turkish cuisine prepared with centuries-old recipes were introduced Sunday at an event in Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, as part of Turkish Cuisine Week.

Turkish Cuisine Week is organized under the auspices of the Presidency and with the support of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism.

Speaking at the event, Turkiye's Ambassador to Azerbaijan Cahit Bagci said Turkish culinary culture, in terms of historical richness, is a unique culture that reveals what the geography offers in a certain order, harmony and aesthetic.

Noting that Turkish cuisine is one of the most prominent cuisines in the world, Bagci also noted that the cuisine is in an effort to survive and resists fast food culture.

Meanwhile, guests were served a menu of Turkish dishes and cooks showed them how the meals were prepared.

According to the Presidency of Turkiye, Turkish Cuisine Week, which will be held for the first time from May 21- 27, aims to showcase Turkish dishes with all their original qualities. The event will be celebrated with promotional events in Turkiye and overseas.

“During Turkish Cuisine Week, meals prepared with creative presentations by Turkiye's world-famous cooks will be offered to visitors in their own geography,” the presidency said.
